comment API Inconsistencies
+1 for the anti popular/activity, they are too ambiguous. Although award_count should be on all badges, as when not associated with a user it means the number of times the badge has been awarded site-wide. (separate fields, e.g. total_award_count and user_award_count, might be better)

comment filter=total is returning 0?
This a pretty major bug, the total field returns 0 even with a custom filter.

comment Documentation sorted by return type
It would be much better to have it on one page like you suggested.

comment Documentation sorted by return type
+1 a list of types would be nice as well (without having to go into the method page)

comment Quota remaining is negative
@KevinMontrose, this bug is back again, the docs API console returns ~-300, and without a key returns ~-10400, one of my keys returns ~-700

comment Is it possible to register V2.0 apps that are not web apps?
@AnnaLear, I don't know about Windows Phone, but I do think the hash is a bit "flimsy", and it could be passed in a better way.

comment StackInbox v2.2 - Inbox client for Mac (Now with notifications)
I will Open Source it at some point, I can't really spend any more time on it, for the next 2 weeks, as it is I should't have spent any time on it at all. I would like to submit it to the AppStore but I haven't got the money (hence it being on dropbox) :)

@George, ah thanks for reminding me about that. I thought the spec was on the private beta announcement, I forgot it was "draft".

comment Access token quota
So if a user has 6 apps running it is possible that 6th app will share my apps 10k limit, and the quota_remaining would decrease by more than one between requests?

comment How to find libraries that are compatible with a certain API release on Stack Apps?
tbh, In the same way StackExchange is not a good design for a forum (or at least thats whats said), it is not a good design for listing apps and libraries. I know you created a site to list them in a much better format, but it is not as well known as StackApps, (which Im guessing is one the least known sites in the network). The apps tab has gotten by, but instead of forcing it, and "patching" on features to do what is needed, your site (after a design to match stack apps)or something like it, should be made the stack apps homepage.

comment Removing/disallowing app does nothing
well then the problem is different, because I created that account to make sure the Facebook login page fitted in the iPhone screen without scrolling (a long time ago, when you could only have 2 open IDs per account). I logged out of that account on this computer before, never used the API with it. Logout says it will log you out on all devices, is that except the API?

try this access token (I know I shouldn't post it, but it should become invalid after this is resoled) rgsA**R6lO5aseFSVy6JBg)) on the inbox docs page

comment Removing/disallowing app does nothing
Yes I know the first sentence, I am specifically denying the apps, then using the API. I noticed this about 10-15 minutes before I noticed the other zero items bug, but posted both at the same time so I had time to make sure it wasn't caching or anything. It is still a problem at the moment. Maybe the API releases I am not authorised to access the inbox (hence the zero items), but it is not realising that it should be returning an error, and showing the dialog.

comment Auth dialog improvements (who's logged in, etc)
@Kevin, I thought that a while ago the network was updated so that users only have one profile, which was pushed between sites? There used to be a button called "copy profile from stack overflow", which has now disappeared?

comment Invalidating access token vs de auth app?
Ok so if an invalid Access Token is used, the API will return an error, it is then up to the app to run the user through the auth process again. The app does so, if the user is logged in already and the app is still authorised, the auth flow will invisibly use the cookies/local storage/etc, or otherwise present the OAuth dialog, right? If I've got that right then it make it much clearer so thanks :)

comment Invalidating access token vs de auth app?
I know, I mean after invalidating an access token, if it tries to access a method using an invalid access token, it will not just get a new access token. because the server is not storing the user's cookies, global login etc.

comment Invalidating access token vs de auth app?
so it only applies to implicit flow?
